    Well, we've already avoided the 5-0 white-wash ... and quite comfortably too. The result will have given us confidence to raise our game for the next four tests.

    Volcanic Rock is one of the best hard rock albums of all time. Dave Tice is one of the best hard rock vocalists of all time. Amazing.

    This is a board for a band that's a metal band. OF COURSE AC/DC is going to win the poll. Although "technically", they're not really from Australia, anyway.

    But outside of INXS, I've never heard of the others.

    Joe broaden your listening mate ... some great bands there ....

    Of course it has to be AC/DC, I like Rose Tattoo also.

    The Angels are criminally overlooked by the Northern Hemisphere.

    They were incredible from the late 70s to mid 80s.

    Albert Records stablemates The Angels (Angel City in some territories) gave ACDC and Rose Tattoo a run for their money- I can say they were streets ahead of Rose Tattoo without batting an eyelid.

    Watch the Angels-live at Narrara 1983 on YouTube to see what I'm talking about.

    If you like ACDC and Rose Tattoo, odds are good you'll like the Angels.
    They had a bit more sophistication to their sound.

    Yeah they were a bit like our version of the heavy 60s and 70s bands, Billy Thorpe and The Aztecs deserve a mention on that note too.
